Fruity aroma has a yeasty overtone and a malty underpinning. Pours a pretty clear amber with a very thick and fluffy eggshell head. Sharp flavor is fruity and a little sour, with malty and yeasty undertones and a hint of woody hops. Smooth, firm texture has a subtle but persistent tingle and leaves a fruity, slightly hoppy finish. Overall, decent.

I love a good Belgian so of course I had try this one... Pours a thick, foamy head that settles after a few minutes. Has a nice look, but the smell has a slightly sour note to it... Taste wise, it gives off an initially promising flavor that is almost immediately followed by a less appealing funky aftertaste... Good carbonation with a crisp mouth-feel though... Unfortunately, I just can't get past the aftertaste. When I think Belgian pale ale, I think Duvel, and this beer just doesn't do it for me. I'd still say that you might want to give it try anyway-- God knows I've tried far worse and I'm sure you have too... Cheers!

Effervescent and crisp. head dissipates quickly. orange/amber borderline in color. earthy, musty, hoppy scent. "horseblanket" brett'ey on the nose and palate. Very brett forward. Possible age on the 4 pack I purchased. Drinks very nice. Though, would love a fresh take on this.

Similar to Orval but not as delicious. Much lower price point.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Came gushing out of the bottle despite no agitation. Has a dark golden color with several inches of head. Smell is of fruits, yeast, funk. Taste is funky, spicy, malts, some fruits, different but good. Feels medium-full in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.
